How To Add Roms (more games) to your System:
Take any Fat32 formatted USB thumb drive and plug it into your computer.
Create a directory called “retropie” (without quotes)
Now plug your Thumbdrive into your retropie and wait 30 seconds.
Plug it back into your computer and go into the retropie directory and then the roms directory and you will see all the systems have their own directory. Simply copy your rom files into the directory associated with the console they run on.

Example: nes roms will be in the retropie/roms/nes directory and snes roms will be in the retropie/roms/snes directory.

If you are unsure of what type of console a certain directory is, simply do a google search: retropie (directory name)
